    I paid upfront $1000 with a Gift Card on my Disney Cruise so I can purchase stuff on the ship (merchandise, beverages etc.). What happens if my trip ends and I don't end up spending all of that? Will Disney refund the money?

    Hi, Rebecca! Welcome back to planDisney. It's great to have you visit us again with another question!

    You sound ready to get on your Disney Cruise and do some shopping. I like the way that you think! If you have purchased onboard credit for your sailing with a Disney Gift Card and you do not use the full amount, the remainder will be returned to your Disney Gift Card. Make sure that you keep the Disney Gift Card safe in the event that it once again has funds to use!

    Rebecca, if you haven't done so already, please download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to prepare for your sailing. Once onboard the ship, you can access the activities and entertainment options within the Daily Activity Schedule. You can even scroll through and "favorite" the activities that you want to be sure to attend. If you enable notifications, the app will send you a notification when your chosen entertainment is about to begin. It's also a great resource for viewing menus, dining times, schedules of when the shops are open, and more! It even provides a chat feature to keep in touch with the other sailors in your travel party.

    Have an amazing Disney Cruise! Sail our way again, any time.
